Therefore I Geek Podcast Episode 113, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

In which Andrew, Becky and Dude discuss the latest addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2.

Things get slightly derailed when Dude’s cat starts being weirder than usual.

Around the Web May 23, 2014

Unbeknownst to me until last night, today is the 20th anniversary of the series finale of Star Trek: The Next Generation. In honor of this, Yahoo sat down with Ronald Moore and Brannon Braga, who wrote that fantastic finale, to discuss exactly how it came into being. It’s a great interview that provides insight into the process as well as some hints of what might have been.

I remember watching this episode as a little kid and not quite understanding how good it was.  As an adult, I have come to appreciate exactly how difficult a challenge it was for these guys to write such a fitting end to a much beloved series. As soon as I have two free hours, I’m going to rewatch it.

Those of you who love the superhero genre, which I expect is most of the people reading this, need to check out the teaser trailer for Disney’s Big Hero 6. Although it is sparse on plot information, the trailer is pretty amusing and I’m already hooked. It looks as though a kid designs his own superhero suit (à la Iron Man) but instead of putting himself in it, he squeezes a rather amorphous looking creature that reminds me of the Michelin Man with less definition, into the suit. The whole sequence is pretty amusing.

Between this and The Incredibles I love it movies that don’t take superheroes too seriously.

With San Diego Comicon fast approaching, Hasbro has announced this year’s SDCC exclusives. Included in them are an Infinity Gauntlet figure set with a wearable Infinity Gauntlet, as well as a second figure set featuring characters from the Thanos Imperative. It’s pretty obvious that these sets are intended to push Guardians of the Galaxy, which is making it’s debut in theatres this August.

Personally, I’d really love my very own Infinity Gauntlet, but I will not be making the pilgrimage to San Diego this year, so I guess it’s Ebay for me.
